When I was pregnant, I wanted a girl so badly! When people asked if I wanted a girl or boy, I refused to give the pc answer " as long as it's healthy", instead I exclaimed loudly and adamantly I WANTED A GIRL!!! I got a boy. I felt bad about it for exactly one day, when after prenatal tests did the announcing, I was bummed about not being able to have my own little doll to dress up in cute baby clothes. In retrospect, I really was afraid I would not know how to relate to a boy. Well, I should not have feared. My son Ben is a great kid, we are very close and raising him has been the best thing I ever did. I highly recommend boys...they are straight forward and easy to understand, and you do not have to deal with any jealousy between you, and their friends are not malicious horrors, as the teen girl scene can be. Cub Scouting is great fun...I loved being a Den Mother. And by the way...there are a LOT of cute boy baby clothes available!
